About this Cook
I'm in my late 20s in the education field and in need of some chef tools. I am hoping to gain some cooking tricks while trying out new tasty recipes. I like to cook
My favorite things to cook
I love baking cookies and cakes, but for cooking, it's anything easy...tacos, mostacholli, grilled cheese are pretty much my main menu. Goal 1: Expand that menu. Goal 2: start cooking with fresh, organic ingredients, instead of the processed staples I was raised on.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making lefse (Norwegian tortilla) with my grandma, aunts, and cousins. Everyone gets full of flour. Also, my bfs family does pierogies (saurkraut, and potato) by the thousands on Xmas Eve, and everyone has their station (dough maker, rollers, fillers, buttering cooker).
My cooking triumphs
When I don't burn something!
My cooking tragedies
Burning, dropping, cutting fingers...I'm clumsy.

Rachel's Cream Cheese Fruit Salad
This light & cinnamony salad was delicious and had others begging for the recipe. I prepped fruit and glaze in the morning, then mixed together when party started at noon. Does not keep well, so don't keep leftovers. Next time I might add a dallop or two of whip cream and serve as a light dessert. Would even be yummy as treat in fall, with apples only.

Easy Chicken Tetrazzini
2 Huge Thumbs Up for this crowd pleaser! Variations to recipe:linguine noodles, added carrots, & jack/cheddar cheese. Don't forget to flatten down the cheese so it doesn't get crispy. It is EASY...10 min prep, 25 min bake time..
